Robert Burridge: Impure Thoughts
June 1 – July 22
The concept for this large installation of drawings in chalk, ash, pastels andpowders stems from Catholic grade school when Robert Burridge was taughtthat impure thoughts were a bad thing and would assure his place in hell. Thissimplistic view of the world was none-the-less confusing to the young Robert.How can a thought be a sin? How can you control your thoughts?This parochial view of eternal damnation stayed with Mr. Burridge until art collegewhere his exposure to the frisky frescoes of Pompeii, erotic Hindu temple art,Ingres and Delacroix paintings of Turkish baths and Assyrian courtsexploded into his burning thoughts.Those early salacious images anderotically charged drawings arecentral to his inspiration for thedrawings found in

Heis a celebrated, contemporary painter, a contributing author to artists’ magazinesand publisher of his own books and instructional DVDs. Mr. Burridge attributeshis success to his early education at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia andhis stint as an adjunct professor at Cooper Union School for the Advancementof Science and Art, New York City, where he taught typography and lmproduction.
